To fulfil the way of reaching the divine feet of our lord, Sriya:pathi, who is having perfectly radiant AdhiSEsha as mattress, nammAzhwAr, the leader of AzhwArthirunagari which is having unlimited wealth, mercifully spoke this decad among the thousand pAsurams; with his eyes becoming reddish, this decad [personified] will look at birth [of his devotee] to weaken it very much and destroy it. The decad itself is spoken as a man personified due to its ability to destroy the birth.

Highlights from nampiLLai‘s vyAkyAnam as documented by vadakkuth thiruvIdhip piLLai

  • sudarp pAmbaNai nam paranaith thirumAlai – The eradication of birth is explained as the result/benefit for those who learn this decad; the goal attained as a result of such eradication of birth is explained here – as explained in paryanka vidhyA, the benefit attained by mukthAthmAs is to see and enjoy emperumAn‘s merciful presence in the lap of thiruvananthAzhwAn along with periya pirAttiyAr.
  • adich chEr vagai …AzhwAr who has the nature of being together with emperumAn’s divine feet. For AzhwAr, gyAnam (knowledge) and Anandham (bliss) are not the identity; SEshathvam (servitude) is.
  • mudippAn sonna … – Also explained as – this decad which was spoken to eradicate the bondage in the material realm, will fulfil the goal of reaching the divine feet of empeurmAn. It will ensure that the birth is eliminated.

While doing that,

  • ippaththum – than kaNgaL sivandhu – nOkkum – That is, this decad is dhrushti visham (poison which kills on being seen) for samsAram. That is, the presence of this decad and birth together are contradictory.
